    The not-quite mock draftees

    There’s something about publishing that first full mock of the first round that makes you realize we’re in crunch time. It’s true — the Draft is less than a month away now and we are focusing most of our efforts on Draft coverage these days. Having my first first-round projection go up yesterday was just […] More»

    Kris Bryant says “Happy Blogaversary”

    The Cubs wouldn’t confirm it, but it appears that in honor of the 10th anniversary of MLBlogs, they decided to call up super-prospect Kris Bryant. Want to know what to expect from Bryant? I talked to pro scouting directors and executives to get a sense of what the industry thought he’d do upon his arrival. […] More»

    Golden Spikes Watch List in action

    A couple of things have happened this week to make me realize that another Draft season is really upon us. First was the announcement of USA Baseball’s Golden Spikes Award Watch List. I’m fortunate enough to be a part of the committee for that process and I’m excited to see how the top amateur players […] More»

    Beyond the Top 10 by position lists

    The Top 100 is coming out Friday night (In case you haven’t seen all the plugs, here’s one more — 9 p.m. ET, and MLB Network). For the past week and change we’ve been building the excitement by revealing our Top 10 by Position lists. With all of those lists, there are, of course, […] More»

    Some extra AFL prospects

    Jim Callis and I collaborated on the AFL Top 25 prospects that went up on the site today. And other than quietly seething that a technical glitch only allows for one of our mugs to go on the top (I joke because I love), I’m pretty happy with how the list came out. Feel free […] More»

    Was the Cuddyer signing worth it? Twitter speaks

    Ask a question on Twitter and you never know what kind of response you’re going to get. On Monday, after it was announced that the Mets had signed Michael Cuddyer to a two-year deal, thus forfeiting their first-round pick (No. 15 overall — story on new Draft order is here), I posed a simple question […] More»

    We knew him when: Kolten Wong

    With the amount of contributions from rookies the Cardinals are getting, I suppose we could stay with them throughout the rest of their run. Given Kolten Wong’s ninth-inning heroics in Game 2, and the fact that we’ve spoken with the rookie second baseman a TON since his draft year in 2011, he was the obvious […] More»

    When we knew them: Marco Gonzales

    I didn’t want anyone to think that was a one-and-done series. I was just waiting for a good opportunity, and one that was non-Royals after the Mike Moustakas retrospective. Don’t worry, KC fans, I’ll have no problem opening the vault in the ALCS and beyond. Marco Gonzales hasn’t been a professional pitcher for long enough […] More»

    We knew them when: Mike Moustakas

    One of the best things about covering the Minor Leagues and prospects is that you get to know players before most do and then when you see them accomplish things on the big league stage, it’s a whole lot of fun. Sure, not every prospect we cover makes it, but when they do, there’s a […] More»

    A preseason AFL Prospects to Watch Team

    Up on now are Jiim Callis’ and my take on which player and pitcher we’re most excited to see perform in the Arizona Fall League this year. I chose Tim Anderson and C.J. Edwards. Jim went with Byron Buxton and Francellis Montas. Obviously, we both are eager to see more than just those two […] More»
